Cameron Diaz was so cute at the MTV Movie Awards when she pulled her skirt up and wiped her armpits.— Pink
Sensational Mtv quotations
Yo I'm seventeen, already sniffin blow.
I tell my friends its asthmary time I itch my throat, I got a new show for MTV, Pimp My Boat.
These are very difficult times for new artists.
Back in the day, a hit song could really seep into a person's DNA with radio and MTV. A hit today is not the same as a hit twenty years ago. Now there is so much competition, it is very hard to reach the people. The music scene is so overly saturated. There are no gatekeepers like there used to be.
The video of 'Paranoid Android' has been censored by MTV.
They took all nipples out of the cartoon, but they had no problem with the scene in which a man cuts off his own arms and legs.
Watch MTV and you can see what the music scene is like in England.
The Spice Girls? Not a lot of creativity in the commercial area. There are still great musicians in England, but not a lot being heard that much.
MTV in general is involved with so many artists - musicians, actors, people in the fashion industry, and art world.
You see so many movies... the younger people who are coming from MTV or who are coming from commercials and there's no sense of film grammar. There's no real sense of how to tell a story visually. It's just cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, you know, which is pretty easy.
The Internet's completely over. [...] The Internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. [...] They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you.
I was one of the first veejays to take the camera out on location, and that's what was unique about MTV at that time.
NC-17 means that you get it in like 3 theaters.
They won't run the spots on MTV, won't run the advertising. It's the kiss of death so there was really no other choice.
The videos are sometimes the only way for people across the country and different places to see and hear the music. They may not get the same radio stations or they don't get the same TV channels, they don't have the same MTV that plays the same music. People will use to the Internet and that's why YouTube and stuff like that is so important.
At MTV, it's very nice sometimes to be able to be very specific.
Specificity really makes a news story interesting because you can color it in that personality.
I'm not perfect, I do drink. I do smoke. Carson Daly can't go out and get messed up, he can't smoke in front of kids - he's the face of MTV, and he has to be good. But me? I can.
Making a good music video isn't easy.
If it were, MTV would still be showing them instead of '16 and Pregnant,' which I assume is shot exclusively in Utah.
If you listen to a song and get an image in your head, and then you go home and watch mtv and the image they're showing is the same as the one in your head, kill yourself. You're better off coming back as a lobster.
MTV didn't call. I guess I wasn't hip and groovy enough
MTV has always been about redefining itself.
At one time, MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.
For better or worse, MTV sort of bridges the whole country together almost like the BBC does in England. It's opened up everything so wide that it's possible for everyone to have different ideas.
I turned down a lot of reality shows in the past, but MTV, back in the day, was just the coolest with Cribs to Pimp My Ride.
My guaranteed way of sending myself into deep depression is to read music trade papers and watch MTV.
I got a PBS mind in an MTV world.
At the time we acquired Viacom, everyone said I had overpaid.
But even at today's depressed prices, that investment is worth billions. Everyone was saying MTV was a fad. I knew better.
The Internet makes it easier to find good music I would have to say.
The radio stations that play the kind of music you were talking about, I don't think me and Curt Smith would be that inclined to listen to. It doesn't really affect us and I certainly don't remember the last time I watched MTV.
I really wanted the MTV Award the most, It was a golden popcorn container and it looks really neat.
McDonald's offers a king's ransom to any hip-hop artist who is able to put Big Mac into a song. MTV - and more to the point, Viacom - is succeeding in extending a teenage life to twenty-nine or even thirty-one years old. It is about extending this market and removing any intelligent substance in the music.
I was a pioneer in MTV and I was there from the very beginning.
So I saw how that developed and how loose it was and how much fun it was in its looseness. And I was influenced a lot by that.
I barely ever watch TV, but when I do, I usually only watch MTV shows, like 'The Real World Sydney.'
MTV has turned more young women into whores than poverty.
Been sitting at home all weekend writing for MTV Movie Awards - unfortunately MTV won't let me do my strip routine ala Magic Mike.
The fans like the idea we do what we want.
It's not an act. Screw the record company and the beaten path. Without MTV or radio, we still have a huge underground following.
I wasn't allowed to watch MTV before school, but somehow I managed to, when I was five or six and Fiona Apple's video for "Criminal" came on. She was so odd and dark, and I immediately felt some kind of connection with her. She was also the first person I admired for their looks.
When you get something like MTV, it's like regular television.
You get it, and at first it's novel and brand new and then you watch every channel, every show. And then you become a little more selective and more selective, until ultimately... you wind up with a radio.
My friend made me a leather dress for the MTV awards.
It gives you confidence, wearing something you love.
I'm wide open and will entertain anything anybody has to say, but if it's MTV and radio, well, they're great things, but can't be the only thing. I don't know that it would work even for the Beatles.
